Best Photograph in Show, by Ben Blake
Notes from Show Chairman, Kirby Fong
The first of the Northern California Daffodil Society's two shows
for 2009 was held in Livermore, California March 7 and 8 at Alden
Lane Nursery. NCDS is grateful for the support of nursery owner
Jacquie Courtright for letting us hold our daffodil show at her
nursery at no charge.
I have not heard about other local daffodil
shows in the U.S., but the Livermore show may be the first to
offer the new ADS awards for the collection of 24 miniatures and
for the 3, 6, and 12 miniature cultivars by the hybridizer. We
actually had entries in all four of these classes including two
entries in the collection of 24 miniatures. Although there was
an entry, the ribbon for 6 by hybridizer was not awarded.
Of note,
was the large number of miniatures in the show with 70 entries
encompassing 254 stems. Credit for most of the miniatures goes to
Harold Koopowitz, Marilynn Howe, and Jon Kawaguchi.
Notes from NCDS President, Bob Spotts
We've occasionally talked about the latedeveloping bloom that is ignored on Saturday's judging, but on Sunday is possibly the best bloom in the room. In my opinion, it happened again at Livermore.
Kirby Fong exhibited a magnificent 'Showdown' to win Best of Show on Saturday morning. On Sunday, there was a stunning bloom of 'Terminator' in John Castor's winning Division 2 collection that would have given the winner a good run then. It had developed over time  it wasn't brought forward for consideration on Saturday.
How about having a secondday champion?
